"PTSD, by definition, affects relationships. Even experienced clinicians will profit from the well-planned and well-researched treatment approach presented in this volume. The manual is incredibly user friendly, taking readers through the ABCs of couple treatment with session-by-session instructions, reproducible handouts, clinical examples, and suggested dialogue. The authors are experts who address all the nuances and co-occurring problems we see with PTSD. This book should be on the shelf of everyone who works with adults with PTSD, they will offer better treatment for it." - Barbara Olasov Rothbaum, Director, Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program, Emory University School of Medicine, USA 

"Monson and Fredman have created an essential resource for clinicians who treat trauma survivors, expanding the frame from individual and group therapy to the key — yet too often overlooked — domain of intimate relationships. The manual provides a complete template for working with couples struggling with PTSD. It addresses critical relational issues (such as blame, closeness, and trust) and shows how to teach clients invaluable practical skills for getting not only themselves, but also their relationships, 'unstuck' from PTSD." - Julian D. Ford, Department of Psychiatry, University of Connecticut Health Center, USA
